Weekend Races, NoBo Graduation, Good Time

This Saturday our No Boundaries group had their final run.  10 weeks of hard work all to run the Liz Hurley 5k Ribbon Run, benefiting breast cancers research and equipment.  I was so very proud of my entire group.  I have run for 10 weeks with the same group of women and they did so good.  I was one proud little coach.

 Look how cute we are at the start line.

This is the biggest race I have ever run.  Over 5000 people.  That makes for a crowded run.

Because of the size of the race my group had trouble getting through the crowd for about the first mile, but once it thinned out a little bit they were on their way.  Looked like they had done it 1,000 time before.  They kept up with the intervals and ran it like it was something they had done every day for the last 2 years.  I only had one that slowed down, she kept the intervals just fine just a bit slower than the others.  Crossing that finish line with someone who is completing their first race is so fun.  It was also pretty fun for me cause I got to see some people that I haven't seen in years.  I enjoyed getting to catch up with some High School folks.

I had to bolt when the race was done, we had a volleyball tourney this weekend and then a basketball jamboree.  It was a crazy Saturday.  I thought I was actually going to have the weekend off...boy did that change quickly.  It was fun though...new season, new sports!  Now I get football and basketball, my 2 favorites at the same time.

On Sunday we had to go to Fleet Feet for our graduation celebration.  And at our graduation celebration I got a new pair of racing tights just in time.  It is officially starting to get cold, woo hoo!!!  I really like the ones I got, the Nike DryFit.  They don't squench my waist off and they are long enough to not ride up under my knees.  I have gone through a lot of tights to find the perfect pair and those got discontinued so I have found a new pair that I like. (for now at least)

This week I am substitute teacher extraordinaire for my morning body toning class.  I met my running partner for a quick run and then off to teach class.  And I am sore now.  Really??!?!?  I get to teach this class on a semi regular basis and I am sore.  uh.  I am fighting through the soreness and working today.  I must vent for just a moment.  I took my car to the shop today because something is wrong, it is some sort of sensor or gauge or something, I didn't listen to that part, and it is taking forever.  I was told 1 to 1.5 hours, well 4 hours later I still have no car and I am stranded and I have an appointment to get to today.  I just wish it was done when I was told it would be or even close to the time frame I was given.

So far today, no workout yet and I have no idea what I am going to do tonight, but I know I am going to do something!  Don't forget, BIGGEST LOSER TONIGHT!!!!!
